HIDE AND SKIN

Will you feetdance to my sultry song 

Will you acquiesce to my distant call 

Will your heart beat in semiquavers 

Will your skin bleed out black waters?  


Do not be riddled by my paradiddles 

Or my bedraggled drags and flams 

Rather conjugate spirit and rhythm  

Let us dance to this spasmodic music.  


At twilight underneath parasols of sin 

We begin the ritual of hide and skin

Making pure melodies with filthy flesh

To my drum patterns and retrogrades.  


Where are you pretty sea-maid

Are you drunken on me-wine 

Shall I beat these hides again 

Or shall I tarry till you can dance again?
